My research is located at the intersection of design and education, focusing specifically on middle and high school literature. Using educational psychology research, particularly in the areas of motivation and engagement, I have explored various ways to deliver traditional literary texts. The hope is to engage students in literature they might normally find boring. Multiple points of entry into the text was a method used in conceptualizing the solutions because it allowed readers to visualize how the text can relate to them as individuals.

The solutions provided represent a small portion of what can be done in the intersection of education and design; they are only limited to the number of stories students are required to read in school.
